 IR3000/828 Tobacco Moisture Sensor
MoistTech’s sensors have outperformed all major suppliers
equipment in head to head moisture testing evaluations. The IR3000/828
Tobacco Moisture Sensor has proven to be the
most accurate over all tobacco process moisture ranges. Having the correct moisture levels in
Tobacco has become a critical component during the various stages of production. Processors are constantly adjusting moisture
and heat during the conditioning process to maintain the quality of their
product. MoistTech’s
IR 3000/828 Tobacco
Moisture Sensor that is ideally suited to measure the moisture levels in leaf processing, expanded, cut and reconstituted tobacco.

recommend installing the 828 sensor
in several locations throughout process beginning with feed forward control, post dryer, cutting, conditioning
and prior to primary processing. The sensor should be mounted several inches above the conveyor so
that it can continuously monitor the process and can control the moisture
content either manually or automatically.

The sensors ability to measure under the widest variations in process temperature, material heightcolor and ambient lighting is just a few of its features. A major propriety development incorporated in the system is its product loss software capability where small gaps, inert material or foreign objects are removed from the measurement calculation thus providing the most accurate and true moisture reading. The 828 is also ideal for installations on chain conveyors and screw conveyors. The 828 is designed for the harshest process environments. Unlike
other moisture sensors on the market
, dust and steam do not effect on MoistTechs 828 readings. However, if the sensor has to be installed close to
the dryer outlet where it will be susceptible to extreme heat conditions
, it may be necessary to cool the sensor with either air or water. The
(s) can be located throughout the process and can be directly connected to the users PLC or any laptop. Ethernet 4-20
ma are included as well as our hightech Windows operating software. DPMDigital Panel Meter and a Color Touch Screen Operator Interface
are also available as read
out options. Sensor calibrations, measurement wavelengths, algorithms and sensor optical requirements are preset at the factory. Typical accuracy is about ±0.1% low moisture applications and ±0.25% on high moisture applications. Complete measurement ranges are 0-65% moisture.
